‘Wouldn’t recommend,’ Johnson says, interrupting Radcliffe, who has been going to physio every day since he was 13.
During Saturday afternoon’s BBC commentary of the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Michael Johnson interrupted Paula Radcliffe as they discussed Team GB’s bronze medal in the men’s 1500 meter final.
BBC host Gabby Logan discussed the latest sports footage with Paula Radcliff and Michael Johnson during Saturday’s BBC commentary of the Tokyo Olympics 2020. They were referring to British Olympian Josh Kerr, who had just won bronze in the men’s 1500 meter final. Kerr finished third after Kenya’s Timothy Cheruiyot won silver and Norway’s Jakob Ingebrigtsen claimed first position, earning Team Norway another gold medal. However, while Radcliff was explaining to her co-stars how much training Ingebrigtsen had to go through, Johnson became overly excited and interrupted the runner.

“Let’s start with Josh, the man of the moment,” Logan said, “because Great Britain had three competitors competing in that final.
“So, we hoped on a numbers game that he was going to produce something,” Radcliffe said of Kerr’s performance. “I think in the heats he thought it was going to be easier than it was here,” Radcliffe said of Kerr’s performance.
“And it felt hard, and that was a mental shock for him,” she said, “so he gave himself a serious talking to.” He came back and raced brilliantly in the semi-final, and he certainly made up for it here tonight,” Logan said.
“Are they well-known people?”
” Logan enquired of the Olympian.
After that, Radcliffe talked about Ingebrigtsen’s family, comparing them to the Kardashians.
Logan said, “They’re my kind of Kardashians.” “They’re excellent role models.
“Keeping up with the Ingebrigtsens is difficult,” the BBC host continued, noting that Ingebrigtsen has never beaten Kenyan runner Timothy Cheruiyot.
Radcliffe stated, “It’s not for a lack of trying or for a lack of talent.”
“This season, [Cheruiyot] has gotten it wrong,” she continued. “He didn’t make the Kenyan team,” Radcliffe continued, before moving on to Ingebrigtsen’s father and the training regimen he devised for his son.
The Olympian revealed that the runner had been seeing a physiotherapist since he was a child. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
